Happiness is fleeting.

Fulfilment is lasting.

I wake up every day to engage people in meaningful ways
so that we live in a more fulfilled world.

Stephen supports leaders to create environments where their people feel inspired to go to work, feel safe and valued while they are there, and return home at the end of each day fulfilled by the work they do. In his engaging and dynamic style, Stephen speaks, leads workshops and coaches leaders and organizations to discover, articulate and live their WHY.

We have a crisis of leadership. The vast majority of people all over the world do not love the work they do. When we do not feel cared for, we are all the more likely not to care for others.

By 2025, 75% of the workforce will be millennials – a generation that is grossly misunderstood and misled. As a millennial, Stephen shares what he has learned and experienced to help leaders of millennials and millennials themselves come together to discuss the future of the workforce, challenge assumptions and empathize with one another.

As Chief of Staff with Simon Sinek’s team at Start With Why, Stephen not only shares the message to inspire others, he plays a key internal role leading culture, product development, and communication initiatives to ensure the Start With Why team brings the Why to life from the inside out. He also co-hosts and co-produces the Start With Why Podcast, downloaded in over 180 countries.

Stephen graduated from the Richard Ivey School of Business with an HBA, focusing on leadership, communication and strategy. He has received leadership and coaching training from the Coaches Training Institute. Stephen travels all over the world and has worked with clients in industries ranging from education, aerospace, banking, healthcare, consumer products, hospitality, law enforcement, government and real estate. Stephen lives in Toronto, Canada with his wife and daughter.
